Homeward Pet Adoption Center Update on Reopening

Homeward Pet is committed to keeping their animals, staff, volunteers, and visitors healthy. With that in mind, they will not be opening to the public for adoptions or donation drop-offs until King County moves to Phase 2 of reopening. Once that happens, they will send out more information about their reopening protocols. Thank you for all your support during these challenging few months!

Events at Seattle Humane

Seattle Humane is closed to the public. Please keep checking the website.

Adoption by Appointment: Under Seattle Humane’s new adoptions-by-appointment system, prospective adopters will first be asked to identify the pet they’re interested in taking home and fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire. A Seattle Humane team member will contact applicants on a first-come, first-served basis, and there will be an over-the-phone advising process to ensure they are a good match for the dog, cat, or critter they wish to adopt. Seattle Humane does not have a set timeline for when an adopter might be invited to campus for an in-person meeting with an adoption candidate, but people will have the option of placing a hold on a shelter animal in the meantime. More details about the new system are available at

Tuxes & Tails, September 26, 5 p.m., Hyatt Regency, Bellevue
Join Seattle Humane for an elegant evening of gourmet food and wine, exciting auctions, and an adoptable pet runway show. Your generous support will save lives, funding critical programs at Seattle Humane that empower them to go the extra mile for homeless pets. Tickets on sale now. And please consider a gift for the animals in lieu of attending. Tickets and more info.

Updates from MEOW

Become a MEOW Guardian Angel: A "Guardian Angel" is a person who cares deeply for an adult cat or cats, but isn't in the position to adopt them. This person pre-pays the adoption fee so that when someone is interested in adopting a cat or cats, the fee is waived. At any given time, MEOW has many adult cats who have Guardian Angels, blessed by the person who wants them to find a home, there will be no adoption fee.

Vouchers for Free Public Spay/Neuter Surgeries Available through MEOW: Thanks to grant funds received, MEOW continues to provide needed spay/neuter surgery support to those in our community. Funds are available for dogs, feral or free-roaming cats, cats belonging to anyone needing financial assistance, and cats who qualify for their Toms & Moms program. If you know someone who could use their help, please have them call the shelter (425-822-6369) or email MEOW at
